Vehicle Tips

According to recent studies, 5% of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

The cooling system should be flushed and refilled every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

Check your owner's manual to find the fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.

Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.

Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.

Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk.

"For over five years, my family has been bringing our five cars and a truck to A-1 Auto Center in Niantic. A-1 is a family-owned and operated business with knowledgeable long term employees. Service is prompt and courteous. Great attention is paid to each vehicle's repair and ongoing maintenance - especially important in our older rolling stock - and all our vehicles run very well thanks to A-1."
